PS4 Update 1.6 Brings Improvements and Headset Support

Last Updated: February 4, 2014

We previously heard some rumors about the firmware update 1.6 for the PlayStation 4, and now it’s a reality. This new update improves the quality of the console’s DVD playback, provides support for wireless headsets, and allows players to mute the PlayStation Camera microphone.


It’s great to see the new update out so soon, especially since it brings some features we’ve been looking forward to. Most players will probably update their PS4 by downloading it straight to the console, but if your PS4 isn’t connected to the Internet, you can use a disc or your computer to get the update file to the console.
